Volunteering Opportunity with Project Cicero

A message from the organizers:

Project Cicero's annual book drive will be held at the Hotel Pennsylvania on March 6-8. Project Cicero is a non-profit book drive that is designed to help create, or supplement, school and classroom libraries for children in under-resourced New York City public schools. Now in its ninth year, Project Cicero has distributed more than 1,150,000 new and gently used books to 6,500 New York City classroom and school libraries, reaching 250,000 students. Project Cicero solicits donations from individuals and more than 100 independent, public, and parochial schools each year, and has received generous contributions from First Book National Book Bank and book publishers.

Each year, hundreds of students, parents, librarians and teachers volunteer in all aspects of collecting, sorting and distributing the books. This year, volunteers are invited to join us the following times:

Friday, March 6, 4-8 p.m. (pizza served)
Saturday, March 7, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Sunday, March 8, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

To participate in this event, please email info@projectcicero.org the date and time you would like to attend. Thanks for your support!
